Mnet will be launching another new rap/hip-hop battle show, this time featuring high schoolers!
The show will simply be called 'High School Rapper', and is currently recruiting high schoolers who wish to audition for the program. It will be MC-ed by Jung Jun Ha and HaHa.
Jung Jun Ha said about becoming a host for the show, "I think I have a lot of ties with hip-hop this year. I'm learning about hip-hop and rap's appeal more and more. I'm glad I'll be able to work with HaHa, and I'm anticipating the honest, bare bone stories of [high schoolers] in the their 10's." HaHa also said, "I was once a high schooler who dreamed of becoming a rapper, so [this program] makes me think about my youth days, and I also want to listen to the honest stories of today's youths from the perspective of a father. I'm excited at the prospect of discovering hidden talent. I'm honored to do this program."
'High School Rapper' will be recruiting audition-ees until December 25 via email and Instagram, before it airs some time in February of next year.
